I had researched vaccines for many years before having children. I was terrified to have children - for that reason. My brother was brain damaged by the DPT and back then (1970's), the doctors did not deny that the vaccine caused the damage. It would have been very difficult to deny the relationship, since back then, the damage was much more severe than most cases are today. Today, they use an A-Cellular version of the DPT so the brain damage is not as severe as with the old DPT.

Apparently, I only researched sites like the CDC, FDA and AAP. I had no idea that the lies and corruption were abundant. I thought these people could be trusted but now I see how naive I was. Now that I've read a lot of peer-approved science which completely contradicts most of what I found at the CDC, FDA and AAP - I want every Mom to know what I know! Back then, I didn't want to read from anti-vax books or websites (this was back when I had to go to the library to use a PC) because I felt that the information would be too one-sided. It took a lot more reading to realize I had been ignorant to the facts due to only reading one side of the issue. Who knew that the people we trust with researching health issues were taught that lies were the truth? Some are corrupt and do know about the lies, some have done research outside of their schooling and some are just as brainwashed as the rest of society is.

But long story short - NO, it's never to late. My oldest was vaccinated on a delayed and partial schedule but I stopped after that one dose of MMR and I'll regret giving him that vaccine for the rest of my life. I can't imagine what it must be like for a mom who feels the same way but has a vaccine damaged child. I do believe that my son's allergies were caused by the vaccinating but he's not autistic, so I can be thankful for that. Still, my heart aches for the parents who didn't learn the dangers of the vaccines in time. I can't even imagine what that's like since I've only experienced it from a siblings point of view.
